An Indiana judge has awarded $15 million to the family of a man who was killed in a 2005 crash caused by a drunk driver.
The crash, which occurred on the Indiana Toll Road, killed four people in all, but Stanislaw Gil, the man responsible, was unharmed.
The truck driver had also been driving longer than federal regulations allow and his employer, Net Trucking, had doctored their logs to conceal this fact, an investigation discovered. Gil has been sentenced to 14 years in prison and 10 years probation.
